Basically, pad printing can be used on 3-d substrates; it has attracted the attention of many researchers in the field of printed electronics. This paper presents developments in the automation of a pad printing machine that improve its specifications for use in scientific fields and equip it with some unique features. Users of this machine can obtain graphs of printing force and printing step durations for tracing and analysing the printing process. If we introduce this basic arrangement with pneumatic system than quality and quantity of printing plates is increase, increase in printing speed ratio, control of stroke is possible at any height, spoilage of printed plates is prevented as well as efficiency of machine is also improved. Pneumatic system makes our machine bulky. Lower maintenance cost than existing mechanism which is gear type arrangement. So, to gain all above mentioned benefits it is necessary to replace gear attachment by pneumatic system.
